Comments on a PT Article

In November we ran an interview with parking legends Ray Liesegang and Herb Citrin. I received this comment from a local senior parking manager who learned his trade at their knees:

John,

I thoroughly enjoyed your brief article and interview with
Ray Liesegang and Herb Citrin.

During my younger days, I worked as a full-time “Shift
Manager” for APCOA at the Los Angeles International Airport (6 days a week) and
part-time for Herb’s Valet Parking Service.  During my brief tenure with valet,
I learned a lot about valet parking from Herb and his hardworking
crew.

In 1977, I left APCOA to work for Ray Liesegang at Century
Parking.  To make a long story short, I was enticed back to APCOA, after just a
few months, by means of a double promotion with substantial compensation, perks,
etc..

One of the most difficult things I have ever had to do was to
inform Ray of my  decision to return to APCOA.  When I met privately with Ray
and explained the details to him, he was a perfect gentleman, a real class-act. 
He said, “Bob, you are a young man with a bright future in the parking
business.  The offer is too good to pass up.  I understand, don’t worry about
it.  I would do the same thing.”

Both Herb and Ray are tough but fair, extremely hardworking,
creative, ethical individuals that are true icons in the West Coast parking
industry.  Both gentlemen mentored me for a brief period of time and for that, I
am truly grateful.
